This update is the result of many months of hard work to bring new life to Classic Amigas.  Special thanks go to Carl Moppett, Darren Eveland, Steven Solie, Joerg Strohmayer, Thomas and Hans-Joerg Frieden, Martin Merz, ACube, Michael Boehmer (E3B), Tobias Seiler, Elbox, and the many AmigaOS 4 developers and beta testers and other contributors to this product.

Hyperion and AmigaKit would also like to thank all Amiga Users for their continued support.  Without you it would not have been possible.  We hope that you enjoy using AmigaOS 4.1 Classic and look forward to the exciting updates that we have planned in the near future!
